Meet Me in St. Louis

Happy Friday!

I'm writing this en-route to St. Louis, where I'll be playing bridesmaid for the first time for my dear friend Amanda. The wedding's taking place at Busch Stadium, home of the Cardinals - so excited!

Started the day off with an early morning wake-up call, heading off to Huntington Tri-State Airport, with a quick coffee stop along the way. I don't know who was more in need of the have - me or E!

The leg to Cincinnati was uneventful, except for two things: the Luna Chocolate Cherry Almond protein bar I munched on, and this, the most awkward thing I've ever posted online.

No seat belt extenders for this gal! Despite it being unflattering to the mac, pictures like this remind me how far I've come. Not only can I fit comfortably in the seats, but folks chat me up when I sit down next to them instead of running away in horror. It's all about the little things, folks!

I was still hungry when I landed in Cinci, so I grabbed a quick breakfast at Moe's Bar & Grill. Sitting there and listening to Celine Dion, I felt like I'd been teleported back home to La Belle Province. It was a nice reminder of home.

I ordered a cheese-less veggie omelet that was stuffed with roasted red pepper, broccoli, onions and tomatoes, with sides of dry rye toast, home fries and black coffee. I had 2/3 of the egg, all the veg, half of the potatoes and 1 slice of toast with strawberry jam. It hit the spot!

Now I'm listening to Green Day, and enjoying a Fresca and staring down some Biscoff that I intend to save for tomorrow's oatmeal - I feel like Kath!

I have some posts I'm working on which will hopefully get uploaded this weekend. Have a great weekend, and enjoy your Fist Bump Friday!

i wanted to give a big woohoo for not needing the seat belt extender. what a great feeling, you should be so proud of yourself!

Hi! Just found your blog. I'm also just getting into running...not following the c25k program but doing one that I made up and going at my own slow pace. Its great! I'm also Canadian...born and raised and still living in Toronto.
Good for you for noticing the little things and giving yourself credit where credit is due!
Have fun at the wedding!

Congrats, Sweetheart!

I know I say this all the time, but I'm extremely proud of you.

And thankful that you brought me home a Biscoff cookie!
